Maghdouche - 8 kms south east of Saida
is the town of the big statue of the Holy Maria. The story tells that
in the cave (today a church) Maria was waiting overlooking the beach
to look for Jesus and his followers.
Today you will have a splendid view of the whole area from the statue.
The town Maghdouche, further up is the place where young people from
the Christian villages hang out. On September 8th people celebrate the
feast of Maria with a big party in front of the church - with beer,
dancing and take-away food.
